I think we all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. (And if you don't know this, you need to climb out from under the rock you're apparently living under).

We see all the pink, numerous companies donate a percentage of their sales this month to breast cancer research, and there's the Race for the Cure.

Tons of exposure.

But I think what most women fail to realize, is also the most important.

Self breast exams.

They're so easy to do, take less than 5 minutes a month, and could potentially save your life. Isn't your life worth 5 minutes a month?

The answer to that would be yes.

It's easy to look online to see how to do a self exam. Too lazy tolookk it up? Here - have a link.

I do self exams. And last January I found a lump. Several mammograms, an ultrasound, and a biopsy showed it to be a large fibroid.

Thank God.

I can't tell you how scary that was. So be proactive about your health. And save your tatas.
